    *6. Tips*
    *********
    
    Here are some quick tips on playing the game.
    
    * To get five stars, you must keep the Village Elder, the Business Manager 
      and the Ecologist happy. With a big grin. And you have to also accomplish 
      the task of puting in all of the basic facilities.
    
    * Try and fulfil all of what the Village Elder, the Business Manager 
      and the Ecologist say to do.
    
    * Also try and keep up the Big Five population. They are the Elephant, Lion, 
      Leopard, Rhino and the African Buffalo.
    
    If anyone else has any tips, please email me.
